Notes

  • On July 3, 2020, it was announced that the 2020 Major League Baseball All-Star Game scheduled to be held in Los Angeles would not be played due to the coronavirus pandemic. They will instead host in 2022.[1]
  • The 2021 game was originally scheduled to be played at Truist Field in Atlanta, GA, home of the Atlanta Braves. However, because of a new voting bill being passed in Atlanta, Major League Baseball relocated the game, the 2021 Home Run Derby, and the 2021 MLB draft (a new addition to the All-Star festivities) to Denver.

For the middle innings, Uecker worked play-by-play with Prince on color and Wolf doing the interviews. For the rest of the game, Wolf worked play-by-play with Uecker on color and Prince doing interviews.

Notes

  • The 1967 All-Star Game in Anaheim can be considered the first "prime time" telecast[47] of a Major League Baseball All-Star Game. The game started at approximately 7:00 p.m. on the East Coast. Sports Illustrated, noting that the game “began at 4 p.m. in California and ended at 11 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time,” reported “an estimated 55 million people watched the game, compared with 12 million viewers for the 1966 All-Star Game, played in the afternoon.”[48]
  • The 1969 game was originally scheduled for the evening of Tuesday, July 22, but heavy rains forced its postponement to the following afternoon. The 1969 contest remains the last All-Star Game to date to be played earlier than prime time in the Eastern United States.

Notes

  • During the 1955 All-Star Game, NBC director Harry Coyle introduced the center field pitcher-batter camera shot to supplement the standard behind home-plate view. The angle allowed viewers to follow the ball from the pitcher's hand all the way into the catcher's mitt.
  • The 1952 All-Star Game in Philadelphia was the first nationally televised All-Star Game, but it was shortened by rain.
  • In 1950, the Mutual Broadcasting System acquired the television broadcast rights to the World Series and All-Star Game for the next six years. Mutual may have been reindulging in TV network dreams or simply taking advantage of a long-standing business relationship; in either case, the broadcast rights were sold to NBC in time for the following season's games at an enormous profit.

Notes
